Tuska 2016 brings more pain with the addition of Ghost, Diablo, Myrkur & more

Tuska Festival which takes place at Suvilahti, Helsinki, Finland on the first weekend of July 2016, has added a bunch of the hardest and hottest acts in the business to its already illustrious line up.

Be prepared to be possessed as the mysterious rituals of Ghost will headline one of the three days at Suvilahti next July. Ghost is currently touring their mega-successful “Meliora” album. The band last performed in Helsinki only a few weeks ago to an ecstatic crowd at a sold out show at The Circus.

Finland’s own Stam1na are currently preparing their seventh release. Stam1na has worked their way up the ranks to one of the biggest metal acts in Finland. Good to have you guys back at Tuska!

Also one of Finland’s finest, Diablo have returned from a lengthy hiatus with their crushing “Silvër Horizon” album.

Danish act Myrkur revives second wave black metal heritage by continuing on the dark path explored by the likes of Ulver and Darkthrone. Myrkur is Amalie Bruun: a classically trained multi-instrumentalist songwriter who adds her own flavour to black metal tradition with her delicate but brutal interpretation. Her debut album ”M” was released this summer by Relapse Records to strong critical acclaim.

San Diego, California based Cattle Decapitation has also been added to Tuska 2016 roster. The band’s new “The Anthropocene Extinction” album provides a solid death metal ass kicking with a twist.
